    What?

    The fight to make was Nunes vs Cyborg. They messed up on this one. They dont care about the 145 pound division.

    For those who think this "can" crushing is whats gonna build the 145 division then hey more power to ya.

    I will laugh if this chick does some how knock Cyborg out in the first.

    Cyborg is a better headline than Edgar vs Ortega, so they went with that. If max Holloway hadn't dropped out, the plan to make Cyborg vs Nunes was not going to get derailed.

    A lot of fighters are ducking fights, and waiting for certain fights to conclude, and certain fighters to get booked, so they can get an easy title shot. It is part of the problem the UFC is having filling cards.

    It is not going to get better. The sport is turning into the "boxing model" right in front of our eyes.

    The idea is that the show will make more money on ppv with nominal numbers than it would as a FS1 card with decent numbers.

    Kind of agree. Its like TJ Dillashaw wanted the Mighty Mouse fight SO BAD. Demetrius finally agreed to terms and then TJ didnt like the terms whatever they were....do you want to fight or not. I wish Dana would actually be a BOSS again rather than let the fighters dictate wtf happens. They complain about pay but not fighting helps their cause how? They dont get paid if they dont fight so they must be doing well enough.

    They needed a fight in less than a month. It’s hard enough to find fights for Cyborg.

    Nunes is likely to duck Cris entirely...let alone fight her on a short months notice.
